“I meant to save your life but, you wouldn’t even call me,” snaps Montana rapper Overtime on his new single “One Last Letter”. The song sends a powerful message about Suicide Prevention, as Overtime pours his heart out in an open letter to his best friend that passed away after tragically taking his own life. The album is the lead single from Overtime’s forthcoming new album “Self Made In America” which is set for release through his own independent label Selective Interest Group on June 10th, 2022.
“The song ‘One Last Letter’ was written as a way to let go of the pain as a result of suicide by a loved one. The song is a letter written to them as if they were still here,” commented Overtime. “Suicide has affected many of us, and this was written as a form of closure because I didn’t have a chance to say goodbye”. The single also includes a feature from Overtime’s dear friend Christian Twite who was the main inspiration for the song.
Armed with his blue-collar work ethic and his music, Overtime has quietly built a music empire bigger than he ever could have imagined. Born a Montana native, Overtime’s brand of unapologetic working class country rap has earned him 110 million Youtube views from his 255,000 subscribers and 240,000 monthly Spotify listeners. Fans have connected with Overtime’s heart, honesty and determination to prove that country boys can survive and thrive in the music business. Everything he’s done has been with a blue-collar mindset, self-booking over 20 cross country tours without a booking agent, record label, or management to navigate through the shark infested waters of the music business.
Overtime’s last album 2019 “Divided We Fall” charted on Billboard in two different categories, including R&B/Hip-Hop Album Sales at #42 and the Heatseekers Mountain at #2. He’s proudly independent and waiving the flag for other artists to adopt his “do it yourself” mindset.
